Two SEC teams

It might be equally likely that we see multiple SEC teams in the College Football Playoff for the third time. Nick Saban and Kirby Smart have become accustomed to meeting in the SEC title game, but they could meet in the national championship game for the third time.

For both Georgia and Alabama to make it in, they’ll need some good fortune on championship weekend. In this scenario, we could see two SEC teams.

  • Alabama beats Georgia (close)
  • Michigan beats Iowa
  • Pac-12 championship game isn’t close
  • FSU loses to Louisville
  • Texas loses to Oklahoma State

Honestly, Alabama and Georgia might both get in, even if FSU and Texas both win their conference championships. The committee might be unimpressed by FSU’s strength of schedule in the SEC and the play of Tate Rodemaker, and they could even weigh a win over Georgia in the SEC Championship game as greater than Texas’s win over Alabama in Week 2.
